I would rather do the latter. I make less than $30K a year as I just graduated college, and I haven't worked my way up yet. I believe it's everyone's civic duty to pay their taxes, and nobody rides for free. It's easy to stigmatize those living on welfare, yet the general public fails to understand that for every one penny the government spends on social programs, they spend $100 on subsidies for large corporations. I doubt you'll ever hear Sean Hannity mention that on FAUX News. Freedom isn't free; it's paid for with blood, sweat, toil, tears, and tax dollars. Nobody rides for free as everything must come from something.
